Can't wait to cut his and Roland's hair.

And yeah, Alain has a very boring garderobe. He wears very similar things every day. Also on this page we get a slightly better look at how scrawny and skinny Alain actually is.

Tricolore mug <3

Can't wait to get to the non-boring bit of this chapter (in about nine or so pages? That's when we have some nice character development).

ALSO JEWISH READERS I HAVE A QUESTION! It's not really very important but I've been wondering. How many practicing Jewish people would you say speak and/or read and write in Hebrew? I always thought it was kind of like Latin and that only the more keen ones gave a shot at learning it but I'm not sure.
Kind of the same question for Yiddish. Are most Ashkenazi Jews able to speak and write in Yiddish or is it just a few? I know some families use it exclusively but that's about it.

Also sorry for lateness, went to New York last week. Bagels bagels bagels <3 The museums were so awesome but holy hell do you guys really need so many American flags everywhere? It's kind of weird.
And all the churches fff there are like two per street round the suburbs.

And your taxis have like television in them. It was like being in Star Trek.

Gonna answer comments tomorrow or with the next page because it's way late here and I want to sleep.

If Henry was Bar Mitzvah'd then he went to Hebrew/Sunday school, so he should know Hebrew.
As for Yiddish, it really depends on family background. The longer that a family spends away from a Yiddish-speaking community, the less and less the children end up knowing. I only know a bit.

Ahh, I just love little "getting ready for work" scenes. But now I'm interested as to where Sophie is...

You were in New York? =o Good thing you didn't tell me or I would have marched right out and said hello. I'd say hello to every British-looking person in the city.

Yes, there are LOTS of American flags everywhere... <_< There didn't used to be until around 8 years ago... now everyone's kind of intimidated to have one up. It's gotten better, really. You should have seen Small Town America circa October 2001.

And the churches - heh. XD You were in New York, sir. You should see the midwest. Think one every two feet or so. It's fun to read the little signs they always have up - some have senses of humor. I saw one in July that said "BEAT THE HEAT - IT'S COOLER IN HEAVEN" which I guess was referring to hell, but it really sounded like the church was encouraging suicide as a handy air-conditioning substitute... <_<

You're cruel. -_- I begged for that stubble...
OoOh, can't wait for the excitement! ;)
(now some predicting: on the next page Henry'll jump him fondly :>...or not :P )

wah you went to New york, you lucky thing!!! ;_;
I know one Jewish person, but the only hebrew he knows is the stuff he learnt for his coming of age thingy (dont know how to spell it properly, so Ill look even more ignorant and write that instead XD)
Hey, I am making a book of my comic, and was going to put that small piece of art you did of one of my characters in there--could I have your real name so I can credit you? (you can PM me it) thankyou!!
And nicely paced page, he is very scrawny, but I always thought he was anyway!

yiddish is used less and less frequently outside of central european (generally the azhkenazi) jewish communities. hebrew is usually known in fragments, whatever jews learn from religious school or community activities, like jewish summer camp etc.

also i think yiddish tends to be more of a verbal language c:

my roommate is orthodox and she's nearly fluent in Hebrew while my other friend's family doesn't practice strictly and I don't think she knows any Hebrew.

I can't wait to get to the good stuff!!! Good work so far!

TheLivingToaster, April 25th, 2009, 8:05 pm

Well, I'm a reform (not very strict at all) jew, and I've had my bat mitzvah and all that... I never really learned hebrew. I don't think most reform jewish people know how, because I have cousins and such who are also over the age of 13... and they never really learned it.
